Targeted Emailing

Targeted e-mails are mass e-mails that can be sent to all users or users matching specific criteria. You can use any custom field within the database as your criteria for establishing who will receive a targeted e-mail, or if you prefer, you can not specify any criteria to e-mail all members in the database.

Sending a Targeted E-Mail

To send a targeted e-mail, from the admin control panel:

  1. Click on "E-Mailing » Targeted E-Mail"
  2. Input your desired settings (see below)
  3. If tick the Preview members who will receive this e-mail before sending checkbox, clicking "Send Targeted E-Mail" will not send the e-mail. Instead it will allow you to preview all of the members who will receive it.
  4. To send the e-mail, make sure that the Preview members who will receive this e-mail before sending is not ticked and click on "Send Targeted E-Mail"
  5. The program will batch send the e-mail according to Batch Size setting.[1]
